Like everyone else on the internet I’ve taken quite a liking to the Broadway Musical about the American founding father Alexander Hamilton. Okay, I haven’t been able to stop listening to the soundtrack but that’s beside the point. If you haven’t listened to any of the songs the entire album is on Spotify. Anyway, a Youtuber by the name of Maureen created a tag involving both Hamilton and books! To check out the original video you can click here to watch it.
A quick warning before starting that there may be spoilers below. Proceed with caution! If you haven’t read A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara and don’t want to be spoiled stop reading NOW.
Question 1: “The Room Where It Happens”
A book world you’d put yourself into..
For this question I’m picking Scadrial or The Final Empire in the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. It’s not the cleanest of places, but there are so many different areas to explore. Not to mention the interesting people who live there. I’ve always wanted to visit a high-fantasy world and Sanderson is an expert at creating complex ones.
Question 2: “The Schuyler Sisters”
An Underrated Female Character..
My choice has to be Georgie Finch from Melina Marchetta’s novel The Piper’s Son. This book is highly underrated and although the plot itself is subtle it carries a powerful message of family. Georgie has to go through misfortunes of death and betrayal, but regardless of her heartbreak still she finds time to help her depressed nephew. She’s a wonderful character that deserves more appreciation.
Question 3: “My Shot”
A character that goes after what they want and doesn’t let anything stop them..
This one goes to a new favorite character of mine. Ladislav – the daughter of Vlad Dracul (yes, that Vlad!) knows exactly what she wants and doesn’t follow the rules. She is bloodthirsty and violently protective of those she cares about, which is few. Lada is brutally honest and won’t hesitate to rip out someone’s throat. How lovely. She is a main character in the new novel And I Darken by Kiersten White.
Question 4: “Burn”
The Most Heartbreaking end to a Relationship You’ve Read..
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover. My heart hurts. In the event of massive spoilers I won’t say anything else. Read this book!
Question 5: “You’ll Be Back”
The only villain that comes to mind instantly is Piper Greenmantle from The Raven Boys Quartet by Maggie Stiefvater. Or really any of the villains in this series. Although she isn’t my favorite evil character of all time her comments are golden, and I can’t help but laugh every time she speaks to her husband.
Question 6: “The Reynolds Pamphlet”
A book with a twist you didn’t see coming..
For this answer I’m picking Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor. It was such a creative twist to a story that already had me clenched within its claws. This trilogy keeps getting better and better. I knew this story was weird, but I would have never guessed what would happen. It’s fantastic!
Question 7: “Non-Stop”
A series you marathoned..
I’ll admit that I was late to this party, but decided that I finally had to read it. When I started Angelfall by Susan Ee I was hooked. The first book reads like a movie and everything is so easy to visualize. After finishing one book I couldn’t stop. I remember staying up all night reading World After (book two) and rushing to finish the last book. It was worth it.
Question 8: “Satisfied”
Your favorite book with multiple Point of Views..
There are so many books I could’ve picked and I’m sure many others have chosen this as well but I couldn’t help it. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin is the ultimate book when it comes to a wide variety of characters. Each character adds to the massive scope of A Song of Ice and Fire. For those of you who were wondering, Arya and Jon are my favorite characters to read from.
Question 9: “Stay Alive”
A character you wish was still alive..
Willem. Do I even have to explain? For more about this heartbreaking and fantastic story read my review here. It’s my favorite book of all time.
Question 10: “Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story”
A Book/Series that you believe will be remembered in history..
What other book is there to pick besides Harry Potter by J.K Rowling? It gave magic to an entire generation and then some. But in order to be a little more interesting with my answer I decided to pick my favorite classic too. Jane Eyre.
